You like whole-hog butchery, right? And you like fancy duds, non? You probably thought they'd never share a billing, so to speak, but tonight at fancy Hayes Valley boutique Welcome Stranger, 4505 Meats will be doing just that. It's Bacon Night! (But it could probably be named after any tasty component of an oinker, since you can walk out the door with pig-chops or pork shoulder along with a couple Rag & Bone button-downs or Malin + Goetz skincare products).

To accompany this demo, local folk four-piece Twig & the Berries will be playing. These four ladies make the perfect soundtrack for a few drinks while learning about where exactly your food comes from and how it's made. And of course, 4505 being 4505, you can pick up a bag of chicharrones, and some spice rub.

On a related note, because bacon has apparently escaped the orbit of mere trendiness to become a permanent thing, shouldn't there be a term for its staunchest aficionados? We nominate reclaiming "porkster" from those evil fat-shamers. Feel free to debate the merits at Welcome Stranger this evening!

Bacon Night, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at Welcome Stranger, 460 Gough St., (415) 864-2079.
